First establish goals that are specific, realistic, and timely. “Making money” is not a specific goal. Making “$100,000.00 in profit” is specific. Set realistic goals. “Taking over wall street” isn’t. But, if you are in textiles, launching a new line of children’s socks is realistic. Make sure you set a timeline for your goals. Without a timeline, it’s nearly impossible to determine how much money to invest in your company for any given fiscal quarter.
Review existing financials for your company. Utilize the expenses of your company’s past history to determine and estimate future costs for your business development. You can budget more wisely. You can also base your estimates on numbers from other businesses in your same region and industry. Most general statistics are listed in trade associations or public records.
List your various cost categories: rent, payroll, taxes, insurance, etc. Account for any unique costs as well such as payments to a former owner. Check your records against other businesses. This may be a good indicator if your budget is too small or too large in any given category. Always review your work and revise accordingly.
